Humanize the Numbers

Exhibition at the 2023 Ann Arbor Art Fair

Humanize the Numbers presents the perspectives of men in Michigan prisons.

The prison system regulates every part of an inmate's identity. Instead of using their name, they are given an ID number. Visiting room photos and mug shots are tightly regulated. Personal info is recorded: height, weight, etc. In the process, their humanity is denied.

This exhibit reveals the faces and stories of those in prison. It lifts up the voices of those who have been silenced by the criminal legal system. The Humanize the Numbers project gives them a freedom not normally allowed in prison. They share their stories with the world outside. By doing so, those in prison reclaim their humanity.

Proudly presented by Prison Creative Arts Project, MI Radio, and The Guild of Artists & Artisans
